I greatly love taking photos at interesting locations and in certain moments of time, when both of them seem to jump out at me. The photos used here were taken in an 1800's Hot Spring Resort in an Arkansas valley that was part tourist trap, part homeopathic paradise. Back then the only cameras that I owned were one-time use cameras, so that's what accounts for the crappy quality of the photos.
"Midnight Blue" was composed and penned far more recently. The strange beauty that I felt when creating the song is the very same eerie "Insane Asylum" quality of the resort. Don't get me wrong; I was captivated the whole time, snapping photos of the amazing stained-glass windows, but the presence of an electric shock therapy machine next to a bed and the other strange devices like a beauty parlor chair that looked more suitable for a dentist office chair... everything was so strange, complex, and yet surprisingly beautiful. Actually, "Midnight Blue" has that same quality to it. It's strange, broody, and complex, tying together its own complexity in 2-3 lines at the end of the song.
Every facet of this artistic venture was all created by me. That just seems to be the way of things recently. Kuderski is overrun by project after project these days, so when the concept came to me, I just bought the needed software and went to town with it.
It's not uncommon for me to do said creating all at once. "MAGIX Movie Edit Pro 2015 Plus" is quite reasonable price-wise, and is also turning out to be a great fit for the concepts that I have in mind for future videos. It's fairly intuitive and user friendly. plus plenty of new functions to mess around with over time, keeping me interested. Can't wait to see what comes out of this all creatively.
Check over the "Midnight Blue" 3-Track Single below, If you like what you hear, it's $1.00 for the whole thing, or whatever you feel the tracks are worth to you. As always, yinz guys, if you need somebody to give their undivided attention for wherever we are in this thing we call consciousness, I'm right here. Goodnight and God Bless.
